Here I mean that the result of transforming XML with a
CSS 3.0 stylesheet, if the transformation's result
were (could be) serialized ...

So if XML is a tool for serializing, you must mean
that a document in XML form is a serialization of an

serializations as well? (I don't mean pictures of XML
files, here).
